“It’s the mark of a good author when one of earth’s most unpopular insects can be made into a hero and actually have the reader cheering for it by the end of the book.

This is what happens in Mr. Mosquito Put on His Tuxedo…

The rhyming text by Morrow is clever and upbeat.

The colored ink with acrylic wash illustrations by Goembel are whimsical and wonderfully detailed…

Get this book and read it! A terrific read aloud for young children!

". . . Cockroaches, bedbugs, gnats and fleas – all are resplendent in Roaring Twenties attire."
“. . . earth's most unpopular insects . . . made into a hero . . ."

“Everyone is a-buzz because the ball is about to begin!
Mr. Mosquito, debonair in his top hat and tails, makes a grand entrance.

Cockroaches, bedbugs, gnats and fleas – all are resplendent in Roaring Twenties attire.

But wait. Eeeeeegad! What is that?…

…Amidst the shrieking ladybugs and freaking fireflies,
Mr. Mosquito gallantly steps forward, gathering his relatives and leading the charge:

‘Prepare! Point antennae! Deploy! We swarm out tonight/ to drive BIG FEET from sight.

Are you ready? Get set. Go annoy!!!!’

Morrow’s staccato rhymes propel the story with a jaunty beat and inspire an exalted tone for a read-aloud – quite fitting for such an elegant occasion…..

Goembel’s insects are impeccably precise, even while dripping in beds and feathers . . .”
